Wait, Have You SEEN The Mom Who Took Her 5 Year Old To A Tanning Salon?

It’s worse than you imagine.

tanning mom 5 year old

Her skin is the same color as her daughter’s hair. This is very clearly not her natural shade. I’m not saying it is a bad shade in itself (I am terrified of hipster racism), but making your skin this unnaturally tinted seems like it’s probably the mark of  someone who is maybe not in a great place. Because that much tanning is very clearly not good for you.

When I first heard about how this mother took her kid to the tanning salon, I thought “oh, maybe something went awry, the kid got into the tanning beds somehow?” I thought that largely because she looked reasonably normal in court photos (albeit like someone who would leave their kid in a waiting room at a tanning salon unattended). She looked like this, in case you were wondering:

I now realize how hard they must have had to work to make her look that normal.

    For shame, Jennifer. Mocking an intentionally dark-skinned white person is the worst kind of hipster racism.

    Can we talk about the fact that in her mug shot she appears to be toothless as well??

    I’ve often thought that I don’t belong in my home state because I’m actually okay with the natural color of my skin and, though I love lying out in the sun on the beach, have no desire to be orange now and leather in my 40s…
